Even Axios pointed out that this is not the first time that Raskin has tried to do an administrative coup, stating ‘
Worth noting: Raskin sponsored a similar bill in 2017, which called for a commission made up of doctors and psychiatrists to determine “whether the president is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office.”‘
Just like in any classically tyranny, those that the state does not like or sees as a threat to the intrenchment of their power is deemed ‘mentally ill,’ or ‘crazy.’ The authoritarian moves the Democrats are making with weeks to go before the election should be enough to give any voter pause when considering handing MORE power over to this group of autocrats.

The gloves are off, there is nothing that the Democrats will not do to strip power from their adversaries. You can be sure that once the Democrats get the power back, they will so entrench themselves (via court-packing, state adding and God knows what else) they NEVER lose control of it again … for as long as the country remains intact.
